The Highland County Historical Society is kicking off its spring season with its annual St. Patrick’s Day Brunch scheduled for Sunday, March 19 at the Highland House Museum in Hillsboro.
The brunch has been the society’s season opening event for 15-plus years, the society said in a news release. It will served this year from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The menu will include biscuits and gravy, ham, potatoes O’Brien, vegetable egg casserole, fruit cups, pastries, and juice and other drinks. As in past years, donations will be accepted with the proceeds being used to support work at the Highland House and Scott House.
Reservations can be made no later than Monday, March 13 by calling 937-393-3392. Leave your name, phone number and the number of reservations requested.
William Albert, a local Boy Scout, will serve as a guest and greeter and will be on hand to discuss his Eagle project, which involves extending a sidewalk from one of the existing sidewalks behind the Highland House to the historic log cabin on the property. Albert will be available to answer questions about the project.
The Highland House Museum does not officially open until May 6, but it will be open for the St. Patrick’s Day Brunch. The museum shop will be open and all the rooms have been refreshed for the coming season. The “military room,” which underwent a major renovation last year, will be featured.
Once the museum opens for the season it is generally open from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
“Please join us with your family and friends and support the society,” the news release said. “My luck be your companion, may friends stand by your side, may history remind is all of Ireland’s faith and pride.”
